A walking bus on Clean Air Day!
(20/06/19)
Posted by : Clean Air for Schools

 

Goose Green Primary School, East Dulwich

 

Action:

 

Goose Green Primary School, in the heart of East Dulwich, used Clean Air Day to launch their brand-new walking bus as a way to reduce children's exposure to pollution.

 

When the walking bus arrived at school, the politicians joined the school and other guests for a special air quality focussed assembly run by the students.

 

On the 20th June 2019, 40 students made their way to school on foot and were joined by local politicians Councillor Richard Livingstone and Helen Hayes MP. Along the way, the students told the politicians about all the things they had been learning in class about improving air quality and explained to them the amazing changes the schools had made to improve the air, such as creating an ivy green screen.

Getting started…

 

The Walking Bus teaching resource is designed to educate your students and the school community about walking buses, collect data, plan and map some possible walking bus routes and use this information to encourage their parents and families to help them run a walking bus.

 

Take a look at the Clean Air Day resources, which includes a ‘How to organise a walking bus’ guide: www.cleanairday.org.uk/free-resources/schools
